I don't have a JB3, but I think it's the same thing as my old MD recorder. Synchro likely means if you are recording from a source that has split tracks like a CD it will split into separate tracks the same place as the original. Continuous probably means it will record one long file. For live recording it will split if there is a pause in the sound like if you are recording voice and the person is quiet for a few seconds it will start a new track when the person speaks again. Like I said, I'm not 100% sure but I have a Sony MZ-R55 recorder that has similar options and that's how it works.

Thanks, I'll try recording with the "Continuous" feature set to on.

Continuous (with the newest firmware) allows for almost seamless recording once you reach the 3-hour file limit size barrier. I think it drop about 2 second, maybe when it starts a new file.

It's not nearly as cool as the Edirol gear which does truly seamless file switches.

So if I'm recording a music concert, do I want the Continuous ON or Off?

i don't have my jb3 around right now nor do i know the setting
but if you need a seemless split, instead hit the |> (next track) button and it will start a new file with no loss
of course to play it safe try and do it between songs

I don't want any splits at all. I just want one long file. So do I use continuous on or off?

hmmm mines on snychro and off
never noticed that setting before, more important, never had a prob recording

and like i said if you get near 3hrs of record time hit the |> button and it will start a new file seemless so you don't miss anything
